            Comments about Essie Protein Base Coat:

            I generally have dry nails but this product keeps them hydrated and healthy. I use it as a base coat, but am addicted to red nail polish which tends to stain nails even if a base coat is applied but this one protects them from the harsh effects of wearing color on top.

              Comments about Essie Protein Base Coat:

              I purchased this product after removing my acrylic nails. My natural nails were peeling and damaged, and I wore this on it's own to protect and strengthen them. It really worked, and it has a slight milky tint which helped camoflauge the damage. I like it as a base coat too.
